Fans of white chocolate will be delighted to hear that there will be a new launch of Cadbury's Creme Eggs this Easter - but there's a catch.

As shops strip their shelves of Christmas selection boxes to make way for chocolate eggs, this is an eggciting new event to raise hype for the next holiday.

White Creme Eggs are out and about, but there are just 78 released throughout Ireland. The elusive choccies are disguised under regular creme egg wrappers. If you’re lucky enough to find one, you won’t have just gained a chance to taste the new creation, but you’ll be a prizewinner too.

If you open an egg wrapper to discover one of the white chocolate eggs, then you get a number to call to claim a cash prize up to €1,000.

Cadbury shared details today: 13 of the white Creme eggs are worth 1000€ each and the remaining 65 are worth 100€. There will be one x 1000€ white creme egg distributed somewhere across mainland ROI each week for the 13 weeks of the promotion. Each week, for 13 weeks, 5 x 100€ white creme eggs will be made available to be won. 

This promotion began on January 1st and will last until 1st April 2018. So let the egg hunt begin…
